This blog post is part of our ongoing TALENT TUESDAYS weekly series focused on how to improve talent management at healthcare organizations. In coming weeks we’ll feature excerpts from our Industry Perspective paper, 7 WAYS TO EASE THE PAIN OF HEALTHCARE HIRING.
The expense and complexity of hiring for healthcare organizations are constantly increasing. The healthcare industry is fast-moving, ever-changing, and intensely regulated, and those who face the task of hiring are typically inundated with thousands of applications. The industry is facing an unprecedented shortage of talent within an extremely competitive marketplace, making recruitment even more difficult. Pressures have intensified for these organizations, which are often understaffed, as they attempt to hire more individuals while continuing to deliver the best patient experience possible. What are some ways to reduce the cost of healthcare hiring?
Delegate and Automate
There are a lot of moving parts in healthcare recruiting. Many of these processes are administrative in nature and could easily be automated with the right systems. Finding ways, even small ones, in which you can streamline and automate parts of your process can dramatically lower your cost per hire. The tools and technology created to aid in this process have come a long way in recent years. So whether you are using an antiquated ATS (applicant tracking system) or struggling with spreadsheets, here are a few ideas that can help:
